5.0 out of 5 stars Following the bloodline Dec 6 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As much as War of Souls follows the giant sweeping epic arcs of Krynn, it is good to be able to watch what the children of the original Dragonlance Chronicles heroes are doing... or in this case one particular grandchild.
That in and of itself does not make for a good book. But what did make this book good was a good solid storyline, interesting characters, and enough intrigue to keep you going from chapter to chapter.
I don't mean to spoil anything but not all details get resolved, but it does leave enough open for a true sequel (rather than the following Crossroads novels which are separate stories) that I would be very much inclined to read.
A few of the details are easy to figure out on your own in this book, and there are a few details you want to slap the main character for not seeing. But to be able to read through the boatload of events going on in one city existing in the location in Ansalon that screams 'Please Gods! Destroy us now!' is very much the treat.

3.0 out of 5 stars A boring series Oct. 26 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I was so looking forward to this trilogy. The look of it just promised a great read....but lead to such a disappointment.
The characters were likeable enough & the plot was good but I was left with an empty feeling at the end. I've come to expect a certain amount of action out of DL books & this had so little of it. This was more of a plotical intrique novel which is fine but it could've done with some more movement.
This is one of those books where the words are just crammed onto the page. The author spent too much time describing the obvious & not enough on making the plot more entertaining. Unfortunately, this was the best in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Linsha Majere, Knight of the Rose! June 25 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This has got to be one of the best Dragonlance novels I have ever read. Bar None! Linsha Majere is ordered my the Solmanics Clandestine Circle to get as close to Lord Bight as possible. They want to find out anything they can use to discredit him.
Shortly after a ship crashed into the docks in Saction's harbor. Almost everyone on board the ship is dead. Having died of some foul disease that no one has ever seen before. This plague threatens to wipe out all of Sanctions people if the cure is not found soon.
Linsha along with her companion Varia (an owl) are pulled into a tangled web of lies and half truths.Not only that but Linsha begins to have feelings for her commanding officer. She also begins to earn a healthy respect for Lord Bight.
In the end she will have to choose between here orders, or doing what feels right in here heart. 5 Stars to this amazing entry into the Dragonlance Saga!

4.0 out of 5 stars Among the best that I have read April 23 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am addicted to Dragon Lance novels and Mary Herbert, in my opinion, is one of the best Dragon Lance authors that I have ever seen. The clearness of her prose makes her characters seem as if they are sitting right next to you as you read her tale. You will be left wondering why things are happening and awaiting with baited breath the next turn of the page. For Dragon Lance addicts, like myself, this is one of the best Dragon Lance books that I have seen in a long long time. The only reason that I have not given it five stars is because Mary Herbert is no Margret Weiss. She could stand to learn a bit from the acknowledged master of fantasy literature.
If you have not read any Dragon Lance before this one, go back and read Dragons of Autumn Twilight and the rest of the Chronicles and Legends sub-series first. The new reader will be a bit confused by the presence of the dragons and the references to Caramon, Tika and Palin. Needless to say this is not an entry book into the Dragon Lance saga.
For those of you are mildly interested in the Dragon Lance saga this one will hook you as it did me. Please be sure to have read the Chronicles, Legends, Dragons of a Summer Flame and the Dragons of a New Age trilogy before you read this one. This one will convert most people to addicts like me.
Now for a small snippet of the tale. The town is Sanction where Linsha Majere has been assigned by the Solmanic Nights to the Clandestine Circle, which has intern sent her to be Lord Bight's body guard. There appears to be something fishy about the governor of the town. Before she realizes what is happening, the governor is not the only one that needs to be saved. Slowly she works her way deeper and deeper into a wired mystery that is Lord Bight.

2.0 out of 5 stars Predictable, flat and ultimately unsatisfying April 25 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First, a disclaimer: I'd been away from the fantasy genre for quite a while when I picked up this book on a whim recently. I used to be a big fan of the Dragonlance world, and perhaps I was expecting too much. But compared to how some of those early tales really affected me, this one just fell flat.
While the main character, I think, was fairly well developed, all of the critical plot developments were telegraphed from MANY miles away (especially the traitor in Lord Bight's midst). The subplot about the bronze dragon, too, seems thin and easy to guess.
Another thing that I disliked was the way the Solamanic Order was portrayed. In all of the other books I read, I gained a healthy respect for the order... in this one, I was forced to question their motives and simply wasn't given a good reason why they were doing what they were.
Luckily, after reading this I picked up the great Magehound by Eileen Cunningham, which gave me faith in the genre once again!
